Still Austin Bourbon Whiskey
Bourbon / Texas, United States
- Texas, United States
This batch of High Rye Bourbon Whiskey has been specially blended for a one-time, limited-barrel release. We hand-selected white corn, Elbon rye, and “wildfire” malted barley. Then we put the humidity and rapidly shifting temperatures of Central Texas to work, coaxing flavors from the charred oak barrels in our rickhouse. The result: warm spice aromas that leap out of the glass to greet you, followed by delicious caramel notes derived from original, thoughtfully sourced grains.View all products by Still Austin Whiskey Co.California Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

Love this local local whiskey. Great on the rocks or mixed with splash sparkling water. However you drink it you won’t be disappointed.

This creation from Central Texas's own is one to keep on hand. Easy to drink and as memorable as something out if Kentucky - these folks at Still Austin have figures it out.
Because of the liquor’s aging process variation, bourbon’s colors range from light amber to dark caramel and each bottle must contain at least 40% ABV. Bourbon can only be called bourbon if it’s aged in an oak barrel; barrels must be new and are pre-charred to help the liquid extract as much flavor as possible from the wood.
While both whiskey and bourbon are made from the same base ingredients (a predominantly corn mash, yeast and water), a spirit can only be called bourbon if it’s crafted in the United States, surpasses a minimum 40% ABV and is aged in new, charred, white oak barrels. Bourbons are generally on the younger side of the whiskey family (compared to older whiskies like scotch) and thus deliver a sweeter profile.
Raise a glass to science: While rye, barley and wheat all contain the gluten protein, the actual gluten is removed during the bourbon’s distillation process, in which the gluten molecules are separated from the actual distillate used to make the final product.
